light bulb cafe.
if you love those super trendy light globes that flicker that warm orange colour, neat typography, big breakfasts and friendly service then this place is for you.
considering they only opened a week ago on king william road and the majority of their tables inside were full, they’re obviously doing something right.
greeted with a big smile we took our seats and got straight on the latte train. we soaked in the gorgeous art work that lined the walls, all by the adelaide based visual artist Meaghan Coles. along with the artwork were splashes of bright aqua and teal, from the tiles to the ikea bar style cart (that I have been secretly lusting over for weeks). everything in this place just works. there is even a little alley way that that runs along side the cafe that you can dine in but today we chose inside due to weather.
artwork by Meaghan Coles lines the walls. the cafe has a very relaxed and cheerful vibe.
the breakfast menu is simple and that’s how I like it. main brekkys come with eggs (however you like them) and the most delicious toast. I know you say how can toast be so good but it was, it tasted like it was cooked on a campfire. then you add your extras- anything from chorizo, avo, to goats fetta and even pork belly. at a reasonable price. there is also a selection of other breakfasts options and freshly made rolls and healthy options on offer.

bottom- poached eggs, toast, mushrooms, tomatoes and bacon
after our feeding frenzy we were both feeling full. in an attempt to feel healthy after eating chorizo at 9am I ordered the ‘green energy’ juice. packed with cucumber, mint, apple, pear and celery; with every sip I could feel the weight dropping off. not really but it for a green juice it was damn tasty.
hello cake fridge!
as you go to the till you are tempted by a huge selection of sweets from mini salted caramel tarts to giant chocolate biscuits. some how we managed to resist the temptation but i’m looking forward to sinking my teeth into one of these babys in the near future.
you can find light bulb cafe at 66 king william road, goodwood. open for brekky and lunch. if your picky about your breakfast and coffee made well then this should be on your list- they’re doing it right.
